Crochet HookF/5 or 3.75 mm hook
- 3.75 crochet hook
- Various yarn scraps (or BonBons yarn)
- Cabone circles
- Begin with a slip knot on your hook.
- Push the hook down through the circle. Grab the yarn and bring it back up through the loop to where you started so you have two loops on your hook. Grab the yarn again and pull it through both loops so that you’re back down to one loop left on the hook. You’ve just made a single crochet stitch. Now do that over and over again until you’ve covered the whole cabone with neat little stitches.
- When you meet back up with where you started you’ll need to join your circle together. If you have a favorite way of doing then, go for it. I just made another single crochet stitch by pushing my hook through one of my first stitches, grabbing the yarn, and then pulling through the loops as usual. Snip your thread and pull it tight, leaving about a two inch tail.
- For your second ring and every ring after, you’ll start it just the same way. You always want to get your crocheting started before you reach a point where you’d have to join it to another ring, even if that’s only a few stitches.
- Hold the rings how you want them to be arranged on the bracelet. Once you reach a point where they’ll join up, begin just as you would a single crochet stitch. Push your hook down through the center of the ring, but when you come back up the other side, come up through one of the stitches on the other ring. Then grab the thread and pull it back up to the front and finish your single crochet as normal.
- Repeat this everywhere your rings touch, but to keep it good and stable I’d recommend at least three stitches to join each ring. When you’re all done weave in all your ends and snip off whatever threads remain.
- Once you have your whole bracelet put together the way you want it, you’ll need a way to keep it on your wrist. Luckily those cabones make perfect toggle closures all on their own, you just have to add the toggle part of it. On my last ring I joined the circle together as usual and then instead of snipping the thread I chained a few stitches. Then I threaded the yarn through the toggle and tied a great big knot.
